Oh I see. Sure, why not. Yesterday, I e-mailed to jet beam dot on their bicycle light. No reply from them yet. In fact, I've not decided what to buy yet. But thanks for your tip.

XT drivetrain mixed with XTR shifters + cables and XTR chain.
XTR chain?? does it wear off easier than the XT one?

so everything XT except XTR shifters and cables / chain is the best combi...

thanks for the advice!

Thomson is well known for having (probably) the highest resale value (provided no scratches etc) and extremely good strength to weight ratio. It may not be the lightest of the light, but its certainly among the strongest.
thanks for the advice!

so does thomson seatpost and handlebar set come in white?

Jet Beam dot com has just replied to me. They say JetBeam CLE w/ Red Cree is no longer in production. They suggest I get JET III ST light and contact a local distributor about it.

Sorry, is this the Jet III ST light they recommend? More suitable for front light rather than rear end.

Welcome! XTR chain ah.. I think should be ok as long as you do proper maintenance.

It doesn't come in white Only in black or polished silver.

Magura? 660 for the Marta SL. Not sure about the Louise (lower end). I think shimano and Hayes are the way to go for sub 500 budget..

Can try formula brakes.

I got mine 2nd Oro Puro for $400 but looks new. I give it 9/10. But performance is super good. Formula brakes FTW.
